    Your a military man, take those basic skills Uncle Sam taught us and put them to good use.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many applicants come in and don’t do these simple things. And people notice!
    suit & shave, no question. went with navy suit, blue shirt, yellow tie. they didnt kick me out for it.

    you mean applicants come in without a suit & unshaven? being serious. i would never consider showing up to any phases without these

    Be natural. Be focused. Sell yourself but don't overdo it. Sometimes less is more.

    Get a good night sleep. Then get up early and go for a run.

    Good luck.
    i overthought it

    kept answers brief but thorough. passed the interview, written & pt this morning.

          Made it through each stage. Psychologist didn’t recommend me moving forward. It’s done. By far one of the toughest “no’s” I’ve had. Traveled quite a bit for it, OH to CO.

          Thanks anyways everyone. It appears I was never cut-out to make it or be given a chance as a full-time’r. My former supervisors say therwise but the psychologist, in the end, has the final say.

            Given your rant about the 2 psychiatrists / psychologists that gonged you, and your reactions to our comments, maybe you should consider another, non-law enforcement and non-firearm carrying line of work.

          Nothing Is Over Until You Stop Trying.

            Try another department. That may only mean you didn't fit the psych profile for that department.
